A broken arm is one of the most common injuries that occurs after a motorcycle accident. Broken bones require time to heal, and often mean casting or even surgery. Immobilization prevents the bone from moving out of place and allows it to heal. Sometimes, surgery is a better choice if the fracture is complex or not likely to heal properly.
Regardless of the treatment, a broken arm will take time to heal. This can mean a period of time away from work, or possibly working a different job for a period of time. For many families, this results in a loss of income. At such an expensive time, as medical bills come in the mail each day, you have less money than ever. Few of us are prepared to handle thousands of dollars in doctors bills.

After your motorcycle accident, the insurance company will try to get you to agree to a settlement as quickly as possible. They know that the longer you wait, the more likely you are to realize that your need for money is great. Just a few days after your accident they will offer you a small amount of money to close your case. Never, ever accept these initial offers. Often, they will not even begin to cover your costs, and rarely will they compensate you for your pain and suffering. At the Law Firm of Kass & Moses, we believe in fighting for the compensation you so justly deserve.

Broken bone injuries are often quite painful. Pain medication prescribed by your doctor can help, but significant injuries often result in ongoing pain. Motorcycle accident injuries can cause pain for weeks, months, even years after a crash. Bone injuries that are not treated properly can result in physical impairments that can last a lifetime.
Bone breaks generally heal well with time and immobilization. Many injured motorcyclists will require a period of physical therapy after the bone itself heals. Physical therapy is prescribed in order to help regain range of motion and strength in the affected area of the body. If you have a broken arm, for example, your physical therapy may involve strengthening exercises to help regain lost muscle in the affected arm. If you have a broken collarbone from your motorcycle accident, you may have exercises focuses on restoring movement and range of motion.
A broken bone injury in the arm is especially troublesome as it usually requires a cast. A casted arm means that you may not be able to drive or work for a period of time, especially if you have a job that requires the use of your arms, like construction or a warehouse job.
